Please use this page to see what we have been up to in school.
To practise reading scales and measuring accurately, we made some exotic juice. In our teams we practised pouring the different juices into the jugs and we had to read the recipe carefully to make sure that the correct amount of each type of juice was added. It was a lovely, refreshing treat on a hot summers day!
In English we have been writing instructions. We started off by telling Miss Telford how to make a jam sandwich and we realised that our instructions needed to be a lot clearer! In groups we utilised the outdoor space to make the most disgusting sandwiches possible to help inspire some fantastic instructional writing.
We took advantage of the glorious weather by completing an arithmetic treasure hunt outside. This allowed us to be active whilst also practising our addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fraction skills.
Strudda Bank Farm
In geography we had been discovering where our food comes from so we went on a class visit to Strudda Bank Farm where we met Farmer Kev and Farmer Vicky. They helped us to learn even more about locally sourcing food and how they care for all of the animals on their farm. We had a great time being in the outdoors learning outside the classroom.
In science we tested a range of balls to see which one bounced the highest. We then had a detailed discussion about how the materials affected how high the balls bounced.
We were visited by an Antarctic scientist who told us all about her job in Antarctica and what she does to protect the wildlife. She even brought some penguins to our classroom!
During our R.E. day we carried out lots of different activities. In the morning we learnt about the story of Rama and Sita with Mrs Winn and then we did dance in the hall with Miss Robinson. In the afternoon we were back in our own class where we learnt about the Holi festival and made artwork using lots of colours.
Our focus during the first half term has been parables. We learnt about the parable of the Good Samaritan and acted out different scenes. We also used our maths skills to measure the roads to find out which would get the Good Samaritan to his destination the quickest.
We also read the parable of the Lost Sheep. In pairs we thought of questions that we would like to ask the shepherd to find out why the sheep was so important. Once we had thought of lots of questions the shepherd came to visit us and answered some of them (although we thought that the shepherd looked a lot like Miss Telford).
During our first half term we had the opportunity to take part in yoga sessions. We were taught how to relax and stay calm and we discussed what brings us inner peace.
